Spin Cycles & Caravans...add water

Just about everythis these days just needs to "add water," with the results bringing you the best of whatever you are trying to accomplish. I never really equated this to life situations, but in fact this simple move is surprisingly simple when followed. Each day when I rise and shine, get to the boards, fill the screen with the mix, a brief stir of the dry, then..add water. Viola, you get the latest, updates, commentary, links, breaking news, video, podcasting and news related to the GLBTQI community and beyond. Wow, is it really that easy, of course not silly, but that's the way we try to make it seem. And now for the news....

Circiling the Waggons: The Family Council Action Committee has been circiling their waggons and filling them with cash according to their recent campaign finance report filing. The group spearheaded by Jerry Cox is proposing an initiative to ban unmarried couples from adopting or becoming foster parents in Arkansas. The report shows that at least $13,000 was collected minus expenses. This is the same outfit that was successful in mobilizing supporters for the 2004 constitutional amendment banning gay marriage. Voters overwhelmingly approved the measure by a 3-to-1 margin. A few weeks ago, AG Dustin Mc Daniel approved the ballot language allowing the organization to gather 61,974 signatures of registered Arkansas voters to be submitted to the secretary of state by July 7. Meanwhile, that un-named coalition group is apparently working stealthly in our best interest.

Watin & Hoping: Well, I'm still watin and hoping to hear anyfeed back on the issue surrounding our poll results where participants stated "there's no actual local GLBTQ community" to speak of. The lack of response, imput or whimper is astoundingly deafining. If you are out there, where are your voices on this matter? Cat got your tounges? Perhaps this is just what those respondents meant, when they said, "there's no actual community to speak of..." I'm still encouaging you to have your say. Because I'm certainly going to have mine....

OH Larry!: After watching the Larry Craig/Matt Lauer interview, I was simply through with the embattled Hall of Fame Senator. Mr. Craig was well prepared with all the right "talking points," about his entire toilet ordeal and subsequent flip-flop on his announced "intent" to resign in September. It's now October, the judge ruled against him in his attempt to change his plea and now he's stating that he's a victim of gladiator politics. Flanked by his wife Suzanne, Craig denounced bloggers and anyone else who have been suspect of his activities. And so it goes in the land of denial. I can't wait for the Lifetime movie.
